Rewind is a Finnish two-man music project started in 2001. Our primary objective is to compose tracks that satisfies our taste of music, not to make non-souled commercial shit.

"Rewind kicks many professionals' asses and is able to create great soundscapes. There are many kind of influences in Rewind's music, but still the futuristic sound is unique and fresh." -Olli Junes, YleX
